As we wait for baseball to return, yesterday it lost one of its absolute best. Ernie Banks, who played for the Negro League Kansas City Monarchs before playing his entire Major League Baseball career for the Chicago Cubs, passed away yesterday at the age of 83. The outpouring of admiration for "Mr. Cub" can be seen just about everywhere, from those who knew the amazingly good person he was to those who grew up admiring his incredible baseball skills. A true baseball icon and just a wonderful human being. He will be missed.

What a witty retort.
Jason is correct.
Waffles is amused.
Well, you heard Darth Mahbles. Get to work, Andrew.
I propose we have a race around the world to determine home field advantage!
